TUPE TRANSFER OF LNER FLEET ENGINEERING STAFF TO HITACHI RAIL EUROPE
The referendum on the company’s proposals has concluded and the result is as follows:
Are you prepared to accept the company’s offer?
Total votes cast 160
Number voting YES 106
Number voting NO 54

Your National Executive Committee has noted the result and instructed me to inform the company of our acceptance of the proposals.
The NEC also instructed me to seek a meeting with the company to include your representatives and Assistant General Secretary Mick Lynch in order to create and industrial relations framework and to address the on-going issues now that the TUPE transfer arrangements have been addressed.
I will of course keep you advised of further developments which arise from these discussions. In the meantime, I would like to thank you for supporting your union throughout what was undoubtedly a period of concern for you and your colleagues.
